Over the last few chapters, I have introduced a number of different techniques that you can use to add spatial data into SQL Server 2008: use a geometry or geography static method directly with a WKT, WKB, or GML representation of a geometry; visually mark out a spatial feature by plotting points on a Virtual Earth web control; or import existing spatial data from a variety of other spatial data formats. In this chapter, we will consider one last technique that can help us to define items of spatial information in SQL Server: geocoding.
